Arrival Story:
It was a very blustery June day close to my birthday and my mum saw the cat from across the yard. She didn't realize how little he was, and called out for me to give him some food. Once we got a closer look we realized he was only a couple months old and he had very obviously been someone's pet. People think that dumping a kitten at a farm is a good way of getting rid of unwanted kittens, not realizing that life as a barn cat is rough, and often short. Darv was so sweet and affectionate that I refused to let him be a barn cat despite the 'no house cat' rule that had been in place for some time. Darv settled into our house like he had always been there.

On our farm we have many cats in the barn, and though we feed them, it is rare that any come into the house or even become especially friendly. The Christmas after Darv found me, we discovered a kitten in the hay mow that we knew came from a litter of about 3 months, but looked more like one of 3 weeks. Though Darv was still quite young at the time, he took care of Addie in ways that only a cat can. He knew that she needed special care and he would groom her, clean her ears and snuggle with her. He even picked a fight with my mother's dog when she became to curious about the kitten. Darv has always been a very friendly, favourite uncle sort of cat and has yet to have a personality conflict with any of the many cats around my mum's farm.
